Sean Mulryan in UK's Power 100
There's Irish interest on the inaugural 'Property Week Power 100' - a list of the 100 most influential individuals within the UK property industry.
Having assessed potential candidates on a range of factors including dealmaking prowess; financial clout; industry knowledge; political power, networking skills and innovation, Property Week has put Ballymore chief Sean Mulryan at 31 on the list, while Rob Tincknell, chief executive of the Battersea Power Station Development Company secures 43rd place.
Sean Mulryan's citation refers to Ballymore as "being one of Europe's most respected residential developers" and the owner of "some of the most exciting sites around". Property Week commends Mr Mulryan for having steered Ballymore to financial stability, saying: "Late last year, the firm exited Nama after paying back €3.2bn in gross debt, a huge achievement for which Mulryan deserves a lot of credit."
Having served as managing director for the UK and international arm of Battersea Power Station's former owners, Treasury Holdings, Rob Tincknell is recognised for having landed the biggest deal of 2016 when Battersea Power Station Development Company signed up Apple as tenants. The 46,500 sq m (500,000 sq ft) deal will see 1,400 of the US tech giant's employees based at Battersea when it opens in 2021.
